    Description

      According to the 2008 SQL Standard, part 2, section 4.2.1, the = and <> operators should be supported when comparing CLOBs. The following script shows this defect:

      connect 'jdbc:derby:memory:db;create=true';

      create table t( a clob, b clob );

      select * from t where a = b;
      select * from t where a <> b;

      A partial workaround would be to cast the CLOBs as VARCHAR( 32672 ). This would work for small CLOBs.
